Adjust Comment Print

At the school, each day of this week has one of Dr. Seuss's books as a theme.

At Little Hocking, students celebrated their love for reading with a door decorating contest, sustained silent reading days, books and bookmarks given as gifts, mystery readers, a school-wide sing-a-long to wish Dr. Seuss a happy birthday, guest readers, an author's visit and dress-up days.

Toni Webb, kindergarten teacher at Garfield Elementary School and local Read Across America organizer, said the annual Seuss celebration is truly a community event. "Making reading fun helps the students learn to read".

"This year-round program focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships and reading resources", the website stated. Reading events are planned for toady at Carpenter Elementary School and for Friday at Old River Elementary School. Everybody wore their favorite hat.

Reading is essential, the teachers union president did say.

"Tomorrow, can we have blue eggs and ham?" one student asked Thompson.

Second Flu Death of the Season Confirmed by Officials
RVNA continues to provide flu shots at 27 Governor Street during normal business hours. Comanche County has had 37 hospitalizations and zero flu deaths so far this year.

"We also have books that go along with growing a garden, flower gardens, vegetable gardens and growing trees and plants".

"It's always a pleasure to visit the young students at Live Oaks Elementary School". Dylan said he already has 40 or 50 books, but he's excited to add this one to his collection.

Buccola said another point of excitement is engaging parents and their children at the same time.

"I love reading", she said. "We love to have the parents being here and seeing the wonderful stories that Dr. Suess has to offer". Research shows that the better a student's literacy rate, the more likely they are to be successful in learning and growing in other subject areas. Afterward, the teacher had the students draw the Lorax, a character from Dr. Seuss' book of the same name. The Saturday Evening Post and other publications published some of his early pieces, but the bulk of Ted's activity during his early career was devoted to creating advertising campaigns for Standard Oil, which he did for more than 15 years. "Their outstanding contribution will support our efforts to celebrate the internationally-renowned Dr. Seuss in his hometown and welcome millions of children and families to the Museum built in his honor for generations to come". "I think it's good for the kids to be doing things like this".

Born in MA in 1904, Theodor Seuss Geisel wasn't a doctor.
